If you need a place to stay close to Johannesburg airport, don't look anywhere else. Avant Garde is a tranquil haven with the most amazing hospitality. It would be difficult to fault the rooms, service or the food. After having accidentally left our travel docs in the room, Armand very kindly drove to the airport with them for us. Can't... More

Avant Gard Lodge is the perfect place to stay if you're flying in or out of Johannesburg airport. Armand, his fiance and family are lovely hosts and staying there is like staying with good friends. The rooms are very comfortable and well equipped, the garden is a delightful place to relax and the chef is excellent - we had the... More

Stayed for one night after our long flight from the UK. Our room was very comfortable with excellent facilities and we enjoyed a hearty evening meal and breakfast.at a time to suit us. A short but enjoyable stay with this very hospitable family and their staff. Our only small hiccup was the difficulty we had finding the Lodge. John and... More

We stayed with Armand and his family and we couldn't fault the place. Service is great and it is like staying with family or good friends. They went out of their way; transfers from airport were included. We loved the breakfast and the dinners. Home made meals were a treat and we looked forward to it. We looked so much... More

We stayed a couple of nights with the lovely Amand and his partner- he took great care of us, even getting up at 4 am to take us to meet our tour! This is a lovely welcoming motel/lodge that feels like a large home- generous and enjoyable meals, a warm fire in the lounge, drinks -hospitality and care factor were... More

Lovely experience at Avant Garde. Nothing really more to say than the other reviews. Armand and his lovely fiancee made me feel that I am sitting in my own lounge watching a great game of rugby on TV! Great food ,great welcome ,awesome attention to detail - up to the rose petal on the towel and the ice cold welcome... More

This property is thumbs up, especially for those coming in or going out on flight at JNB. The owner (Armand) goes out of his way to make you stay comfortable. He will come to the airport to pick you up! The property is walled, gated, safe and set in a large well kept garden. Rooms are large and clean. The... More

Through a mistake of Booking.com I met Armand the host of Avant Garde Lodge and saw the lodge and one of the rooms. Armand is a nice person and helpful and the lodge is lovely. Even though I was not staying there he offered me juice and tried for over one hour to help me rectify the booking.com mistake.

I stayed at Avant Garde Lodge on my first night in South Africa. It is closely located to the airport, without being right at the edge of the airport. I had read reports saying the area was not the best for safety, but I felt completely safe there as a solo female traveller. Armand had helped me by arranging pick... More

We stayed here twice between flights on our trip in Africa. It made a perfect overnight stop. Armand met us at the airport and drove us the very short distance to the guest house where we were greeted with a welcoming drink and a chef ready to make us whatever we wanted. The food was great and very reasonbly priced.... More
